File 149007598876.jpg - (44.87KB , 480x360 , tree-chan a cute!.jpg )

This is gonna be hard to explain, but i'll do the best I can. Basically, I have a desktop computer, but it doesn't have a wifi card. Because of this, I use an ethernet chord and connect the desktop to a laptop. This laptop has a wifi card, which is connected to a router wirelessly. There are certain restrictions with my place of living which restrict me from connecting the computer straight to the router. Is there some sort of way i could use a vpn on my desktop to mask my ip? I know I could run a vpn on the laptop and it would work, but the laptop is really damn slow and i don't want to go through the trouble of installing the vpn on it. It's fedora 23 btw, and my desktop is windows 10.

You could also just skip your complicated arrangement and just install wifi on the laptop.

Because there's no point in hiding anything with Windows 10 in the middle.

I have wifi on the laptop, i don't have wifi on my desktop. Also, because of my graphics card i can't install a wifi card. I'm not using the vpn for illegal purposes, if i was i wouldn't be using windows 10 in the first place, I just want to get unbanned from certain sites and protect myself from 1336+1 haxors.

Dammit, you're right. I reversed the connection map in my head.

You're using a USB graphics card? Otherwise you could install the (USB) WiFi adapter there - they don't just work on laptops.

Getting a VPN tunnel working across a double NAT'd connection can, depending on the VPN software in use, require you to modify your laptop so it fixes up the connection for you. Putting the system directly on the network removes this additional complexity and you only have to worry about the router's NAT.

I'm using an internal graphics card, but I already bought an internal wifi card. The wifi card is PCE-N15 PCI-E adapter. I don't know about the graphics card, it was given to me from a friend.
Are there free vpn's that will work over the bridge like you said? I want to limit my spending as much as possible.

Also, I could try to get rid of the graphics card completely and just use my motherboard so i could install the adapter(i wouldn't really want to considering it would probably hurt the cpu to process that much), but every time i've tried that the monitor just goes black and I can't get it to work.

Personally I don't trust free VPN services - it costs money to run a VPN server and provide bandwidth and they've got to pay for it. The obvious way to do it is to monetize your traffic. So I don't know if there is a free VPN service that supports double or triple NAT without any router changes - my gut says no, simply based on the way VPN is supposed to work, but I simply haven't looked. There may be a free VPN service that spies on your data that cuts the necessary corners so that you wouldn't have to make any router changes. Since you seem adverse to making changes on your laptop creating the necessary fixup rules are probably out.

Your ideal solution would be to have the desktop directly on the network. Assuming you have a USB 3.0 port I really don't see the harm in getting a USB adapter, it should be reasonably fast and work about as well as an internal NIC.

I don't know why your motherboard video doesn't work, perhaps you disabled motherboard video in the BIOS/UEFI. On my ASUS board I have the option to disable it, enable it, and enable it when a video card is present. At work on my prebuilt I have no options - it's enabled when a video card isn't present and disabled when one is present. i7 4790K vs i7 4770, both include a GPU, but the options in BIOS/UEFI are a bigger difference... OEMs never expose as many.

Am I missing something, can't you just connect your PC to your laptop via ether and share your wireless connection with it?

The router shouldn't be able to see the PC as the only directly connected device is the laptop so unless they're sifting and snooping through your traffic you'll be fine.
